Daniel Levine founded Levine Properties with his father, Al Levine, in 1984, the same year he graduated from UNC Chapel Hill with a B.A. in City and Regional Planning & Development. The company develops, owns and operates commercial and residential properties in the Charlotte area and select national locations.
In Charlotte, the company invests in a Golden Triangle Strategy pursuing mixed use, infill developments in a very disciplined geography starting in Center City going out 74 and South Blvd to 51.
In Uptown’s First Ward of Charlotte’s Center City, Levine Properties is currently redeveloping a 23-acre parcel of land, four blocks long and five blocks wide, anchored by UNC Charlotte’s Center City Campus, Imaginon Children’s Museum, and First Ward Park.
The vision is an Urban Village with apartments, hotels, office buildings, retail, restaurants and, like all great neighborhoods, a personality of its own. With two light rail Blue Line extension stops in that footprint, tenants like Google Fiber and companies like LMC, the multifamily division of Lennar, acquiring a city block for apartments and retail earlier this year, the project is well underway.
Another Levine Properties project in the works, Carmel on Providence, a mixed-use development in partnership with Raley Miller, at the high profile intersection of Providence and Fairview, will undoubtedly change that area with retail, a new grocery store and luxury living. Raley Miller brings a retail expertise to this joint venture.
Daniel and his wife, Leigh, have two children and live in SouthPark.
